It really depends on the OOP. We all know how those dead rubbers tend to go.
:haha: Petrova over Sharapova.

If I'm not mistaken it was the only tanked match in the YEC round robin history. Well, at least I can't think of another one.

Sugiyama def. Henin in 2003 probably. I was really cheering for my girl Sugi but the scoreline suggests that some tanking may have been involved :tape: :help:

Mauresmo knows how to beat Sharapova, but in their match in 2004, Sharapova already had 2 wins I believe and was serving and volleying and hitting drop shots left and right.

If this wasn't the third match, it certainly wasn't a tank.

Also, poor Chanda rubin that one year with Dementieva playing the spoiler! (Was that Elena's only RR win ever?)

Ok. But I doubt this year Sharapova will be in position for tanking a match ;)

That was no tank by any means.
Had Chanda won that match she would've progressed into SF instead of Mauresmo. You could call it a choke, but it wasn't a tank.

Who knows? Depending on the OOP, I can easily see her getting two wins and not caring about the third...

Although, I really really wouldn't want her to tank anything even if it doesn't matter. It's just poor form.

Someone may be 2-0 going into their match against Maria, and Maria could be 1-1:: In this case, I would enjoy seeing that player tank :devil:

Of course! I was just reliving the memory of crazy third matches.
Chanda by no means tanked. She was gutted, and Dementieva was playing for her pride.
